Description

The hot South-African summer is getting to Emily. She escapes to her Uncle Tim’s farm where she meets green-eyed Joey and can relax.

But Emily has an eating disorder, and each day she slips further away from those around her. Only Anna can help her—Anna the healer, the herbalist, who possesses the wisdom of ancient customs and traditions. Anna offers Emily knowledge of a world she could scarcely imagine.
